China’s new Beidou navigation system will not only rival the United States’ GPS, but also Russia’s GLONASS, and EU’s Galileo. More than a hundred countries including Pakistan have already started using the system and have become a part of the Belt and Road Initiative.

The BeiDou project invovled more than 300,000 scientists, engineers, and technicians from 400 different domesitc institues and universities. The project had been under development since the 1990s and has finally been completed in 2020. The new system was commisioned last week by the Chinese President Xi Jinping at a ceremony at the Great Hall of the People.

Experts told Chinese media that:

the completion of BeiDou-3 was due to the fact that core technologies cannot be bought or begged from other countries

By the end of 2019 in the Chinese mainland, more than 6.5 million road vehicles, 40,000 postal and express delivery vehicles, 80,000 buses in 36 major cities, 3,200 inland navigation facilities, and 2,900 marine navigation facilities had adopted the BDS, forming the world’s largest dynamic monitoring system for road vehicles.
